Eviction and Unlawful Detainer Law

Will My Eviction Action Be Heard By A Jury Or Judge?

In California you have the right to have a jury decide your eviction action. If the landlord does not initially request a jury the tenant may request a jury trial. To do so the tenant must file form UD-150 (Counter-Request). Unless you qualify for a fee waiver, the requesting party must also pay the $150 jury fee.
